Lendlease has secured final approval for new North Sydney Tower at Victoria Cross. The approval signals the final green light for the broader Victoria Cross integrated station development, which will incorporate the new 42-storey tower, Victoria Cross metro station and numerous public spaces.
The new tower at Victoria Cross will accommodate up to 7,000 office workers across 56,000 square metres of high-tech, premium space for office and retail use, supercharging North Sydney’s economic potential as an extension of the Sydney CBD into the future.
Representing the latest thinking in workplace and placemaking, the building design achieves the Property Council of Australia’s premium-grade office building guidelines, exceptional sustainability credentials and iconic Sydney Harbour, Harbour Bridge and CBD views from upper levels.
Below the new tower, a retail-activated laneway will provide convenience and amenity to tenants and the community, bolstered by exceptional connectivity via the rapid transit Sydney Metro network – Australia’s biggest public transport project – which is integrated into the development.
Victoria Cross is the latest addition to North Sydney’s rapidly transforming landscape. Surrounded by other leading national and international tenants, Victoria Cross will rejuvenate and re-invigorate the North Sydney CBD.
The Victoria Cross over station development is estimated to generate thousands of on-site construction jobs across the life of the project, with flow-on effects through the rest of the economy in areas including manufacturing and building design and engineering. The three-year construction project is expected to commence in early 2021.
